Here are my favorites:
The only way to have a friend is to be one.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
*You can probably guess by now that I like his quotes a lot (:*
Today, give a stranger one of your smiles. It might be the only sunshine he sees all day.
~Quoted in P.S. I Love You, compiled by H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars.”
Here is a short little story, but very meaningful.
During my second year of nursing school our professor gave us a quiz. I breezed through the questions until I read the last one: "What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?" Surely this was a joke. I had seen the cleaning woman several times, but how would I know her name? I handed in my paper, leaving the last question blank. Before the class ended, one student asked if the last question would count toward our grade. "Absolutely," the professor said. "In your careers, you will meet many people. All are significant. They deserve your attention and care, even if all you do is smile and say hello." I've never forgotten that lesson. I also learned her name was Dorothy.
~Joann C. Jones
And now, some special quotes in the spirit of Valentine's day (:
*I do not know who they are from as I got them from a random website*
Somewhere there's someone who dreams of your smile, and finds in your presence that life is worth while, so when you are lonely, remember it's true: somebody, somewhere is thinking of you
Fine guys open my eyes, smart guys open my mind but only a sweet guy can open my heart.
Never start frowning because you never know who's falling in love with your smile
One day your prince will come, mine just took a wrong turn, got lost, and is to stubborn to ask for directions.
An angel is what I was meant to be thats why being sweet come so naturally!
Do u believe in love at first site? or should I walk by again?

I've learned to never underestimate
I like it because sometimes I intepret it as nodody should give up on thier dreams. Never think that anything is impossible. There are some amazing people that overcome all odds. look at the special olympics for example. Those people never let anything come in there way of becoming an athlete and I admire them for that. Flying to the moon was once considered impossible and look at us now. We built the Lunar Module and flew to the moon. Nothing is ever impossible if you have the will to work for it .

I like it because it reminds us all that we shouldn't be mean because we'll always have to live with that no matter what we do.

i chose this quote because i believe it tells a lot about friendship. if you and your friend are truly friends, they stay with you forever in your heart. time will go on and people get older, but the friendship and memories last a lifetime.(:
I got a very intersting one from Jenna, not a quote, but rather a word
